Ian Ashley Jones jailed for blackmailing escort

A man who threatened to expose an escort to her employers at a care home has been jailed for 16 months.

Ian Ashley Jones, 23, of Welshpool, Powys, contacted his victim through Facebook after the pair met up and demanded £490 to pay his rent.

Mold Crown Court heard the woman instead called the police.

Jones, who admitted blackmail, was banned from contacting his victim, cannot visit her place of work or mention or name her on social media.
